My Window to the (Morning) World

The view out my bathroom window is the first glimpse I have of the outside world each morning. I am treated to spectacular sunrises, ice or snow covered branches, thunderstorms, brilliant sunshine, and the occasional foggy landscape.

Once I catch a glimpse of outside, I always have to investigate further, getting right up on the window to admire the beauty. I am blessed to have woods surrounding two sides of my home, and it's not uncommon for me to see a deer (or two) lounging outside my bedroom window. As long as I don't spook them, they will stay there for hours ... munching on foliage or just taking a rest. One of my postings, in July of 2016, showcased a pair of deer (you can see the photo's here).

I've also had woodpeckers close enough to touch (you can see those photo's here). I even saw a red fox once (read about that here). That was cool! It is always a treat to see birds and animals so close to my house, but looking at weather phenomenon is just as wonderful.

This morning, I woke up to a world of fog. Once I saw the fog out my bathroom window, I had to take a picture out my bedroom window and of the woods in back. My woods have given me countless hours of pleasure ... from working in it, to enjoying the birds and animals, to photographing its beauty in various weather conditions. Buying this house was the best decision I ever made.
